Department and Faculty
The Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology service at Mayo Clinic is comprised of physicians and allied health staff from neurosurgery, neurology, radiology, anesthesiology, and critical care. Each year, the entire spectrum of neurovascular conditions and disease is treated essentially at one site, which ensures an unparalleled training experience.
Many cases are "straightforward." This allows fellows to become skilled in the management of typical neurosurgical problems. However, there are also many complex cases which are referred to Mayo neurologists and neurosurgeons for evaluation and treatment. These difficult cases will often require a multidisciplinary team approach to patient care, which broadens the educational opportunities for the trainee.
The average endovascular neuroradiology caseload is approximately 800 major operations per year, which includes:
- 300 operations for vascular diseases (aneurysm, AMV, carotid, bypass)
- 600 endovascular procedures
- Average fellow operative caseload is approximately 400 operations per year
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's Endovascular Neuroradiology service members are committed to teaching and facilitating the trainee's development as a professional. Many of the department faculty have published and lectured extensively and are well regarded for their specialty and subspecialty expertise.
